As they should, because they are simply not tensioners as i see them. Semantics perhaps.
I'm just trying to get Jim from selling his bike and giving up
and you guys are getting into a pissing contest over
whether it is a tensioner or an idler.
Who cares?
Maybe you should get a room or start another thread?

All the guys I know who what they are doing don't
use the tensioner.

I will never use idlers or muffler clamps LOL
